Hopefully I am not wasting NASA time with this report! On arrival at gate G-4 we were able to walk directly from the terminal out onto the ramp. There was a lock on the door but it was on the outside preventing crews from re-entering the terminal from the ramp. This appears to be an ongoing problem at miami and neither the airlines, security at miami, nor the airport management seem interested in removing this potential hazardous situation. I do hope you will be able to place some meaningful telephone calls and help me rectify this problem.

Title: DOOR TO RAMP FOUND UNLOCKED AT MIA TERMINAL.
Narrative: HOPEFULLY I AM NOT WASTING NASA TIME WITH THIS RPT! ON ARR AT GATE G-4 WE WERE ABLE TO WALK DIRECTLY FROM THE TERMINAL OUT ONTO THE RAMP. THERE WAS A LOCK ON THE DOOR BUT IT WAS ON THE OUTSIDE PREVENTING CREWS FROM RE-ENTERING THE TERMINAL FROM THE RAMP. THIS APPEARS TO BE AN ONGOING PROB AT MIAMI AND NEITHER THE AIRLINES, SECURITY AT MIAMI, NOR THE ARPT MGMNT SEEM INTERESTED IN REMOVING THIS POTENTIAL HAZARDOUS SITUATION. I DO HOPE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLACE SOME MEANINGFUL TELEPHONE CALLS AND HELP ME RECTIFY THIS PROB.
